Snapchat – How to Zoom with One Hand
One of our favorite social media applications is Snapchat. You can use it to connect with your friends and anyone around the world, post silly snaps, have a chat, or even do a voice or video call.
Snapchat is a lot of fun. It’s also very versatile. There’s always something new getting added to Snapchat. Whether it’s new filters, lenses or functionality, it’s all good. And one feature that’s really useful is the ability to use Snapchat one-handed. That includes the zoom feature, which you’ve probably been doing with two hands without knowing there was another way. You used to need two hands to do this task: one to hold down the record button and the other to pinch the screen in and out to zoom.
Let’s look at how you can zoom with one hand on Snapchat.
You probably already know, to record a video in Snapchat, you hold the “Record” button down to take a video. The one-handed zoom feature is tied to this.
Here’s how you do it.
- Within the Snapchat application, get your smartphone camera in selfie mode or use the front camera.
- Then, hold down the button in the bottom middle of the screen to start recording.
- While holding that button, move your finger up to zoom in.
- If you want to zoom back out, just move your finger down while still in record mode.
That’s how you do the one-handed zoom with Snapchat. You can use it to add some flair to your selfie videos or creep on others from a distance. Now you can do things even more efficiently and dramatically as needed when using the Snapchat application.
So, one-handed zoom on Snapchat is a beautiful thing. And now that you know how to do it, go forth and takesome amazing video snaps.
